    I guess it would depend on how old you are, this one came out of a 1966. Still debating on the front end, I have a long tower warrior link pin beam but it's way to stiff

    Keep the BJ beam and run the link pin conversion arms. What the old timers called a parallel beam. Much better geometry and much less brake dive.

    Making some progress, just winging it on this one. I think I am going to use the link pin front, what I will do is get the longer trailing arms

    Making some progress and I'm worn out . 90" wheel base with lots of leg room and easy to get in and out of. The wife loves it so far
